    Peripapillary Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer and Ganglion Cell-Inner Plexiform Layer Changes on Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients with Unilateral Hypertensive Cytomegalovirus Anterior Uveitis

    Purpose: To investigate whether peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL) and macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) thinning are present in patients with unilateral hypertensive Cytomegalovirus anterior uveitis (hCMV AU). Methods: We included 19 eyes with unilateral hCMV AU and their unaffected fellow eyes as the control group in this study. Peripapillary RNFL and macular GCIPL changes were determined using spectral-domain (SD) - optical coherence tomography (OCT). Results: The overall calculated mean pRNFL thickness was significantly lower in the affected eyes with hCMV AU than in the unaffected fellow eyes (p = 0.012). The mean macular GCIPL thickness in the affected ...
